The Bird I Was

a bird, I am

still running its face

into the glass of a lovelier life

 

close to where I choose my words

at a desk

before dreaming the dreams

 

of my ancestors

and falling deeply in love

with the bird I was

 

lying very still now

on the floor

below a window in my father’s house
